Vintage Roses Tea Cozy


On weekends I haven't been going out much, and I've paused my garment-knitting projects until after my pregnancy when I can see where my measurements land. Up until now, garments have been my go-to craft projects, so I've been branching out and seeing what non-personal-garment things I can make, like a tea cozy!

Wonderful News!

Flashback Summer: 1940s 1950s Unique Vintage blue velvet gown

I don't know about you guys, but I have an irrational need to be ready for formal events. Like, what if I get invited to a ball? What if the governor calls and wants me to go to her New Year's Day brunch? What if I find out I'm a princess and Julie Andrews is my grandmother and I have a coronation to attend?!

How horrifically awful would it be to get an invitation to such amazing events and have to go underdressed because I had nothing proper to wear?!  The HORROR!

Snow Teeth Whitening


Teeth whitening is one of those things that I've always thought about but hadn't tried for myself until recently. I've had pretty naturally bright teeth, but as the years have gone by and my tea and coffee habit has grown, I've noticed that my teeth are starting to stain a bit. 

Turns out, the ladies of yesteryear were also concerned about that! 

Vintage Capsule Wardrobe Update

So I’m a bit over halfway into my two month trip, and I’ve got an update on how my capsule wardrobe is working for me!

I’ve created this video showcasing one of my capsule wardrobe outfits and some of the things I’ve noticed about my capsule wardrobe so far.

It basically sums up to this: The capsule wardrobe is actually working quite well for me; I just wish I had a mid-weight jacket of some kind for this in-between, cold-ish weather that doesn’t quite merit a big coat.

But overall, I’ve been pleasantly surprised at how many outfits I’ve been able to make.


6 YEAR Blogiversary!


Wow, guys.  I just can't even believe it: October marked my SIXTH blogging anniversary!  I published my very first blog post on October 14, 2012. (You can read it here if you'd like a chuckle and hopefully appreciate how far I've come, ha!)
